LCD Soundsystem - Oh Baby

Album

American Dream (stylized in all-lowercase on digital releases) is the fourth studio album by American rock band LCD Soundsystem, released on September 1, 2017, by DFA and Columbia.

It was announced on January 5, 2016, the day after it was revealed that the band was reuniting after a disbandment lasting nearly five years. It is the band's first album in seven years, following This Is Happening (2010). This album reached number 1 on the Top Rock Albums chart and was LCD Soundsystem's first record to top the US Billboard 200.

Prior to release, LCD Soundsystem performed at large music festivals as well as smaller shows to promote their reunion. "Call the Police" and "American Dream" were released together as the album's lead single on May 5, 2017, and "Tonite" was released as the second single on August 16, 2017.

"Oh Baby" was later released as a single on September 20, 2018. The album received widespread acclaim from music critics, appeared on many year-end lists, and was named "Album of the Year" by Mojo and Uncut. The album performed well commercially and became the band's first number-one album in the United States, Canada, and Portugal.

At the 60th Annual Grammy Awards, the album was nominated for Best Alternative Music Album and "Tonite" won the Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording.

Background

LCD Soundsystem's third and previous studio album, This Is Happening, was released in 2010. After the album's release, the band announced their breakup in early 2011 and also announced that they would end with a show at Madison Square Garden on April 2, 2011. Due to the raising of ticket prices by scalpers, the band made plans to perform warm-up shows at Terminal 5 in Manhattan, New York.

After their final show, they released a documentary film in 2012, which followed the band prior to the show and featured footage of the actual performance. The album The Long Goodbye: LCD Soundsystem Live at Madison Square Garden, which contained the audio from the show, was released in 2014 as a Record Store Day release.

In October 2015, online publication Consequence of Sound reported that "multiple sources" could confirm that LCD Soundsystem would be reuniting in 2016 and that they would be headlining "high-profile music festivals in the US and UK." This report was later confirmed by Billboard. However, DFA Records label manager Kris Petersen stated that LCD Soundsystem would not be reuniting. DFA co-founder Jonathan Galkin also confirmed this in a Pitchfork article.

Two months afterward, the band released the Christmas-themed track "Christmas Will Break Your Heart", acting as their first piece of new material since their cover of Franz Ferdinand's "Live Alone", released in 2011. Consequence of Sound and Pitchfork both reported again, after the release of the Christmas single, that multiple sources could confirm a reunion in 2016.

Coachella

On January 4, 2016, it was announced that LCD Soundsystem would be headlining the 2016 Coachella Festival. The following day, the band announced that they would be releasing a new album some time in 2016, although they were not yet entirely finished with the album. It was later revealed that the band signed with Columbia Records.

Following a backlash by some online users against the reunion, Murphy explained his reasoning for the reunion in a post on the band's website. He stated that he did not want to release a solo album with live performances including LCD Soundsystem members, nor did he want to release an LCD Soundsystem album with entirely different people playing live, that is, if the original members did not want to create a new record.

He had invited past members Nancy Whang and Pat Mahoney to his apartment to talk about releasing new material, where they both agreed on making a new LCD Soundsystem record together.

Recording

The band recorded the album in multiple locations. Like previous albums Sound of Silver and This Is Happening, one of the recording locations was DFA Studios in New York City. Murphy announced after finishing recording that American Dream would be the last record to be recorded at the original DFA Studios building.

Recording also took place at the Lanark, Strongroom, and Church studios in London and B-Side Studios in Portland, Oregon. The band were forced to cancel tour dates for shows in Asia and Australia dated during the near-end of 2016 in order to complete work on the album.

After this was revealed, it was suggested that the release date for the album would be moved into 2017, as opposed to the original prediction of 2016, as the recording was predicted to take another few months. It was noted in April 2017 that the band had been working on the album for 18 months. In a Facebook post released in May, Murphy announced that the album was finished and that it was prepped for mastering.

Composition

Musically, American Dream has been described as dance-punk, new wave, post-punk, synth-pop, art rock and dance-rock. Critics noted the album as similar to David Bowie's Berlin Trilogy. The album's lyrics deal with depressionsocial issues, fear, and ending of friendship and love.

The album's closing track, "Black Screen" is an homage to Bowie. Murphy wanted to get Canadian singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen to perform a spoken word piece at the end of the track, but Cohen died only a few days after he came up with the idea.


American Dream è il quarto album in studio del gruppo musicale statunitense LCD Soundsystem, pubblicato nel 2017.


Artist

Gli LCD Soundsystem sono un gruppo musicale indie rock statunitense fondato dal creatore della casa discografica DFA Records James Murphy.

Pionieri del dance punk e appartenenti alla scena indie rock, il gruppo di James Murphy ha proposto una dance elettronica che attinge dal post-punk e dalla new wave. Fa eccezione il loro ultimo album American Dream (2017), decisamente più cupo e riflessivo dei precedenti.

La band è particolarmente popolare nel Regno Unito, dove ha scalato le classifiche con i due album LCD Soundsystem e Sound of Silver.

Lyrics

Oh baby
Oh baby
You're having a bad dream
Here in my arms

Oh sugar
You came to me
Could all be a bad thing
And do you harm

Oh oh oh

Oh lover
You run from me
We move like a bad scene
Shot in the dark

Oh but please
Please wake me
For my love lies patiently
Please baby please
And my love life waits for me

Oh love
You came to me
Are you having a bad time?
There in your home

Oh sugar
Give in to me
You're just having a bad dream
Of raining lungs

Oh but please
Please shake me from my lovesick patient dream
Please baby please
And my love plays wait and see

Oh I'm on my knees, yeah
I'm on my knees
I promise I'm clean
And my love life waits

And you're already gone
Yeah, you're already gone
We are already home
And my love life stumbles on

Oh baby
Lean into me
There's always a side door
Into the dark
Into the dark, shh

Testo

Oh piccola
Oh piccola
Stai facendo un brutto sogno
Qui tra le mie braccia

Oh zucchero
Sei venuto da me
Potrebbe essere tutto un male
E fai del male

Oh oh oh

Oh amante
Tu corri da me
Ci muoviamo come una brutta scena
Colpito nel buio

Oh, ma per favore
Per favore svegliami
Perché il mio amore giace pazientemente
Per favore piccola per favore
E la mia vita amorosa mi aspetta

Oh amore
Sei venuto da me
Stai passando un brutto periodo?
Lì a casa tua

Oh zucchero
Arrenditi a me
Stai solo facendo un brutto sogno
Di polmoni che piovono

Oh, ma per favore
Per favore scuotimi dal mio sogno malato d'amore
Per favore piccola per favore
E il mio amore gioca ad aspettare e vedere

Oh sono in ginocchio, yeah
Sono in ginocchio
Prometto che sono pulito
E la mia vita amorosa aspetta

E te ne sei già andato
Sì, te ne sei già andato
Siamo già a casa
E la mia vita amorosa inciampa

Oh piccola
Appoggiati a me
C'è sempre una porta laterale
Nell'oscurità
Nel buio, shh
